Libor, the world’s most important number, is going away in 2021. But according to a recent Wall Street Journal article, banks and corporates have been slow to move away from the rate – even as regulators are uncharacteristically ahead of schedule in creating alternatives. So why are finance executives dragging their feet? Laurie Brignac has some thoughts.

Brignac is the chief investment officer and head of Invesco’s Global Liquidity Business. She’s a recognized industry expert on corporate investing who has presented at the AFP Annual Conference. Brignac has been in the investment business since 1989 and is on numerous industry committees both in the U.S. and globally. Brignac discussed the “what”, the “when” and the “how” to be ready for the Libor transition.
